Lyrics

You said it wouldn't burn, so I scalded deeper

You said to wait my turn, but the pain just keeps creeping in

You said a lot of things I didn't want to know

And then you go and you tell me, you admit that it is

And always was for show

You don't have to try so hard just to be yourself

You do a much better job of it than anyone else

I'm so tired of wanting to disappear

I'm so tired of wanting to go anywhere but here

I'm so tired, I'm so tired of you being near

You said I couldn't handle it

Being with you would be too much

I did not know then what you meant

But I think I understand such things better now

You don't have to try so hard just to be yourself

You do a much better job of it than anyone else

I'm so tired of wanting to disappear

I'm so tired of wanting to go anywhere but here

I'm so tired, I'm so tired of you being near

It's so dark now here for me

But I've brought it all on myself

Can't help feeling slightly guilty

Can I go back on the shelf for awhile

You don't have to try so hard just to be yourself

You do a much better job of it than anyone else

I'm so tired of wanting to disappear

I'm so tired of wanting to go anywhere but here

I'm so tired, I'm so tired of you being near

I don't know how to get through

I just know I don't know what to do

I don't know how to get through

I just know I don't know what to do
